December – Flipping it Over

I enjoy fall decorations.  They are up from September 1st until the day after Thanksgiving, and even then, I’m reluctant to give them up.  There’s just something about having gourds, pumpkins and bittersweet vines around the house to make it feel cozy as the weather changes.  But all good things must come to an end.  The fall decorations are gone.  And when I say gone — I mean gone!

We had one decent pumpkin from our garden that we harvested probably the end of July.  It’s been part of our fall decorations for the last several months, but we chopped it in half and fed it to the chickens.  They loved the seeds and the pulp and there was nothing left when they were done with it.

So now it’s on to the Christmas decorations – which don’t stay up nearly as long as the fall decorations — but I like this too.

I love cutting the bittersweet that grows around the farm.
